Yahoo is closing down Geocities sometime this year. Wow, I am still storing some stuff in it and actually have a link on my blog's sidebar to my lyrics page there. I still have an Angelfire account, too. So I sign in today to see how much of it is worth saving. My whole site was under 10 megabytes, so I could email it all to myself if I really wanted to. The first thing I see is three .gif files named blue, green and grey. These were just 10x10 pixels of blue, green and grey, and I found them useful back when I hand coded pages of links. Those were the first things to go, along with several background .jpg files of a chain link fence, crumpled paper and some wood. Then i changed my index page to point to my blog, since it wasn't doing anything else.

What is a Flow Purloiner?

That last post may not have made sense to anyone who doesn't play Kingdom of Loathing, sorry. They are the custom signatures you can now create to show off your character on the forums. Yes I have six characters, no I do not have a problem =) Back when I started, you could only be one class, there were six classes and I wanted to try them all.

Radio Play and a Head Cold

I can't keep Coldplay and Radiohead straight. I am forever mixing them up. I also got Jeff Buckley and Jeff Healey mixed up once. What celebrities trip you up?

We don't know for sure where the word April comes from. It could simply mean "other" or "open", or it may have been named after Aphrodite.
